India Expanded Polystyrene market is anticipated to grow at a steady CAGR of 5.81% by FY2030. Increasing use of Expanded Polystyrene due to its inertness, high stability, and thermal resistance drives its applications in numerous industries such as the food & industrial packaging industry and is anticipated to spur the demand for Expanded Polystyrene in India.

Expanded polystyrene (EPS) is a white rigid material formed from expanded polystyrene beads. It is a plastic foam insulation product that is lightweight and stiff. The inflated and then molded EPS beads are utilized to create larger EPS blocks that are then used to construct walls, ceilings, flooring, basements, and architectural features. The low-density polymer known as EPS, which is organized into separate cells, has high moisture resistance, good chemical barrier protection, and lightweight properties. The addition of graphite enhances the insulating qualities of completed goods, paving the way for their application in the construction industry.

The construction of various residential buildings is majorly driving the demand for Expanded Polystyrene due to its unique durability and perfect thermal efficiency. As the product is lightweight, it is widely used in packings of fragile items such as glassware or moreover as solid blocks to improve the safety of products. Additionally, to improve the safety of the products related to pharmaceuticals, it is used in cold chain packaging, which is one of the major applications of Expanded Polystyrene. Furthermore, when it comes to food and beverages, Expanded Polystyrene helps them to retain and maintain the freshness of the products. Additionally, in the automotive industries, Expanded Polystyrene plays a very important role to provide comfort to passengers EPS Foams are used in the manufacturing of seats used in vehicles. Additionally, EPS foams are used to insulate air conditioning equipment in vehicles and in reducing the transmission of engine noise inside the cabin. Internal parts for the refrigeration and air conditioning industries are also made from EPS because they can be molded in one piece, has the necessary rigidity, and has the necessary insulation qualities.
